About The Edlong Corporation
A passion for dairy flavors. A taste for excellence.
Edlong may be best known as the go-to source for custom, high quality and great-tasting dairy flavors and ingredients, but Edlong is much more. Since 1914, Edlong has created concentrated dairy flavors and high-intensity dairy ingredients. Over that time, Edlong has applied its technical know-how to create dairy flavors that offer the right combination of performance and cost. Dairy profiles are uniquely complex, contributing both taste and tactile attributes to products. Turning to a specialist makes sense. Edlong offers natural flavors in a range of dairy profiles, in addition to technologies that deliver rich, creamy mouthfeel and taste masking. Whether you are looking to replace delicate dairy commodities, improve dairy taste, replace allergen ingredients, reduce formula costs, enhance mouthfeel, or mask off-notes, discuss your needs with us. Experience what distinguishes Edlong as a partner in creating solutions.
